Hi Veronique,

thanks for posting this. In Part VI, question 82b, it is mentioned that
333,125 USD was donated in kind. Can you confirm that this does not include
the volunteer contributions to Wikipedia? (assume not, or at least hope that
it's not valued that low ;-) )

A more general question for anyone who knows: Part III, question 1 mentions
whether the org. tried to influence politics. Does anyone know 1) what this
includes (only US politics or also foreign, also mission related lobbying
(free licenses for example) or only general R/D lobbying) and 2) whether
answering Yes would make any difference to the tax status etc for the WMF?
(just interested :) )

The document asks about affiliates. When, according to the IRS, is an
organization an "affiliate"?
